Some Background

History


The first race was presented in 2018 at the Voortrekker Monument and almost 7000 cyclists participated in 2019.


The route went through the CBD but as a result of problems with taxis and pedestrians we had to change the route in 2020 to Rayton but as roads in the rural areas are deteriorating we are back where we started. The Voortrekker Monument with their excellent facilities will once again be our point of departure and ending.

Due to the wonderful co-operation of the newly elected Tshwane Metro Council and experienced cyclists the route will be better and safer winding through suburbs in Centurion. The Metro approved the closing of certain roads on the routes.

It is a dream came true for many that the capital city of South Africa will be able to compete with other major cities in South Africa to offer one major race annually.

Hectic Promotions became known for offering races to promote cycling and support social welfare institutions in this difficult time. We also strive to better our environment and support recycling. It is the responsibility of all South Africans to make our country a greener and cleaner place to live in. Another aim is to promote cycling under all race groups. Your support is appreciated; in the process you are helping various people and institutions.

Extra Activities

Kiddies

It is important to expose children from a young age to cycling. We want to encourage children with disabilities or less privileged to participate in the fun.

The following categories will be available:

  • Kids in strollers
  • Any item with wheels
  • People in wheelchairs
  • Primary School children

Participants in all the above mentioned categories are invited to participate in the races in a safe environment as no vehicles will be allowed on the Suikerbos route on the western side of the Monument. Participants will participate in a specific group.

The entry fee for those who can afford it, will be R50,00 p. p. All the money will be donated to a children’s institution.

There are no winners as all are regarded as winners and every participant who completes the race will receive a medal and a goodie bag.

Other activities

Coffee and food stalls

Provision will be made for all to start the day with a cup of coffee and light refreshments. Refreshments will also be available at the prize-giving event. Bring the family along and enjoy the day.

Tours through the Monument

During the race tours through the Monument, presented by previous deputy Minister, dr Pieter Mulder, an expert on the history of the Monument, will take place.  You only pay the entry fee at the Monument.

Handmade items
Recycling

Interesting exhibitions of items made of recycled material will be on-site to make people aware of the importance and possibilities of recycling. We had enormous problems with plastic in our rivers and the sea. We will present courses for unemployment people to make items out of plastic bags that is lying around. The course will be free and the students will receive needles.
